These 4ply yarn blanks will give you a new canvas for dyeing. Easily make self striping yarn for socks and more! No more winding tiny skein chains, just mix up your colors and have at it!
Give the sock blank a nice long bath in warm water - it's key to being sure that dye will saturate the yarn. Each blank is approximately 10" x 42" when dry.
A horizontal dye pattern will yield a wider swath of color to the final knit fabric and when dyed in vertical patterns it will give a more varied appearance to the final knit fabric.
The blank unravels from one end easily so you can knit directly from the blank or wind a skein or center-pull ball for a more traditional approach. There is a 'right' end and a 'wrong' end where you will begin the unraveling. The 'right' end will unravel smoothly; the 'wrong' end has a lockstitch at both edges.
